Charles Rice Goff III produced the recordings compiled on SHIFTED BY PREVAILING WHIM between October, 2010, and February, 2011. Each composition was released to the public internationally through the internet before it became a part of this album. Goff's use of a MIDI compositional tool and vocoder synthesizer in the production of every piece provides a continuity which holds the collection together stylistically. The themes and moods of the recordings, however, vary widely.
The following recordings first appeared on the website belonging to the Tapegerm Collective of loop recording artists at www.tapegerm.com :
Apple Blackberry Smoothy, Because Something Isn't Quite Right, Exacerbate, Fado Avocado, Waxpaper Shells For Deliberate Pastels, Lick My Beefheart Off, Rhino, Crash Course, View From A Brain Cell, Descanter Of Tao.
The following recordings first appeared on Volumes One and Five of Hal McGee's International Email Audio Art Project, curated through the Internet Archive at www.archive.org :
The Wail Between The Seams, Chumps' Change.
Goff himself posted Carol Of The Bells on the Internet Archive as part of a 2010 Holiday treat for friends, family, and fans. The site provides some historical background on the composition as well:
Goff also created color graphics to accompany each of the recordings included on SHIFTED BY PREVAILING WHIM. These graphics are archived here along with the audio files. The PDF file of cover art for this album, also archived here, includes all of Goff's original lyrics plus specific details about each of the individual compositions, including the names of the Tapegerm artists whose sound loops Goff incorporated into these works (many thanks to them all!). Goff extends special thanks also to Justynn Tyme, whose work with Goff inspired View From A Brain Cell, and to Karen and Carmelita Goff, whose candid observations and support helped mold this collection into its final form.
